You can‘t install Pi-hole on a Mac, macOS is not supported.

See here

Sorry, to clarify, I am using my Mac terminal window and accessing my ASUS RT-AC89U router on which I have a USB drive with a 1GB Ext2 partition. That is where the problem is arising, when I run this command there this is the error I am getting. Thank you. Apologies for the lack of information.

So your plan is to install Pi-hole on your router?

Yes Sir, that is what I am trying to do. I am running that command line like so :-1:

See the hardware and software requirements. Pi-hole is not made to work on routers.
